Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy New Year and Happy Holy Holidays to you from everyone here at Tom Anderson Guitarworks.
May we introduce you?
Back Row beginning at the top left and moving right is:
♪ Laurie: Co-owner—Runs the business end of things, keeps us all together and makes us look more intelligent than we really are. And can she sing! What a beautiful voice.
♪ Art: Final Assembly—An amazingly versatile musician who can play almost any chart you put before him and a very enjoyable person to hang with.
♪ Dave W: Final Assembly—You may have seen him on television before. Yes, he is somewhat famous. He also has a great original band that plays around Hollywood.
♪ Bob: Head of Final Assembly—To call him a good musician is a gross understatement, man can he play! He plays a Rockabilly-style with two original bands and he is a very fun guy.
Next row forward, beginning at the left and moving right is:
♪ Chuck (The Dreaded Keeper of the Stone): Finish Department—He is famous, just check out Guitar of the Week Archives.
♪ Charles:Pickups/Electronics—He is our newest member and dined with us in Guitar of the Week for November 19th. His father helped us with the research for “Year of the Drop Top.”
♪ Dave P:Pickups/Electronics—One of the greatest humans on earth and master of the pickup room.
♪ Bruce:Final Assembly/Modification/Repair—He was featured in Guitar of the Week for November 26th, 2000. When he, Bob, Dave W. and Art get together it is like the Marx Brothers.
♪ Ralph:Woodshop—Quiet, deep and very fun only begins to describe him. He has come up with so many innovations that we have lost count.
Next row, a person by himself:
♪ Jesse:Head of the Woodshop—Since he is the guy that picks your “top” he is still unable to show his face in public (see Guitar of the Week Archives, July 9th, 2000). Nice bag though.
Front row, beginning at the left and moving right:
♪ Rachel:Front Office—She is the joyous voice that usually greets you when calling. Everyone loves her!
♪ Roy:Product Specialist—Overjoyed to be here and speaking with you now. Wants the Red Cobra S he is holding for Christmas but it is going to Garrett Park Guitars in Annapolis, MD.
♪ Tom:Owner and Every Department—This is “The Tom.” We all feel that he is one of the greatest human beings we have ever had the pleasure to know. He is a pretty smart guy and a great guitar player too.
♪ Lenny:Pickups/Electronics—Mr. Fun and full of knowledge about many things. You can’t have anything but a good day with him.
♪Tino:Finish Department (Buffing)—When the head of the Buffing Department at PRS stopped by for a visit and saw Tino’s work he had nothing but praise for this man—so do we.
